Yemen accuses Saudi coalition of violating truce 842 times

Tehran, Feb 24, IRNA - Yemeni Armed Forces spokesman has accused the Saudi-led coalition of repeatedly breaching ceasefire agreement in Al Hudaydah, Yemen, saying that it has violated the truce 842 times over the last 72 hours.

According to the Yemeni media 'Saba', Brigadier General Yahya Saree said Saudi-led coalition forces targeted various areas in Al Hudaydah with missiles.

Meanwhile, he added that Saudi reconnaissance and spy planes flew over Al Hudaydah, As-Salif, Ad Durayhimi District, Tahita District and Aljah.

He went on to say that Saudi jet fighters bombarded various areas in Al Hudaydah, Saada and Hajjah for 55 times.

The United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 2451 to support the Stockholm Agreement on deployment of a team in order to facilitate monitoring and implementing the Agreement and establishing truce in important Yemeni ports.

The resolution mainly focuses on sending essential commodities to the Yemeni people, supporting the Stockholm Agreement, assigning the Secretary-General of the United Nations to implement it and observing the ceasefire.

The fourth round of Yemen peace talks kicked off in Stockholm, Sweden on December 6 with the attendance of the UN special envoy Martin Griffith and the government representatives. It agreed to establish truce in Yemeni ports of al-Hudaydah, al-Salif and Ayn Issa.

Saudi Arabia and its regional allies attacked Yemen in March 2015 to bring back to power the deposed president of Yemen Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Since then, the invaders have committed horrible war crimes against Yemeni civilians.
Earlier, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said Iran has given no commitments to any party or country over Yemen.

He added that Tehran believes in establishment of a ceasefire in Yemen and is trying to pave the way for sending humanitarian aid there and holding intra-Yemeni talks.

Islamic Republic of Iran will spare no efforts in line with finding a peaceful solution to Yemen crisis and preventing continuation of humanitarian disaster in this country, Qasemi reiterated.
